Synopsis

Amazon.com
There has never been an instrument that conveyed more romance than Stan Getz's tenor saxophone, from the breathy, beautiful tone--all air and gauze--to the rapturous sweep that he could bring to a melody. It's a sound both warm and cool--able to convey everything from hesitation to keening passion. Getz could also swing hard, but this compilation puts its emphasis squarely on the ballad side, picking up highlights from his Verve recordings from 1952 to 1968, placing him in intimate small groups to orchestral settings. Getz perfectly captures the breezy warmth of a Brazilian beach in his collaborations with João and Astrud Gilberto, including "Corcovado" and "Girl from Ipanema," while there's another kind of poetry in the way he floats across the orchestra on "Moonlight in Vermont" and "Alfie." Herb Ellis's guitar frames Getz beautifully on "I'm Glad There Is You," while Getz's stunning melodic invention is highlighted in two quartet tracks with pianist Bill Evans, "But Beautiful" and "Melinda." --Stuart Broomer

"Para Machuchar Meu Coração, O Grande Amor, Corcovado, Girl from Ipanema, Moonlight in Vermont, Here's that Rainy Day, all of which are spendid. No tenor sax player could make a couple feel good like Stan Getz. This is the album to impress old and young for a romantic evening. Stan and Tony Jobim, we miss you."

"This was my first Stan Getz CD. I now own over 60. If the opening measure to the first cut, Moonlight in Vermont, does not sweep you away, nothing will. Pure tonal brilliance."
Getz Get' No Better Then This:

"In a breathe; you know when you first get a CD, you play it over and over and over for about two or three weeks, then you put it away-Only to pull it out from time to time. I just can't; for the life of me, seem to be able to put this beguiling CD away. I am truly affixed by the intrinsic state I provisionally inherit each and every time I garner my surroundings with the music from this CD. I am literally tethered to the splendor of this CD and all that it entails. Simply stated: If you're looking to settle down after a tough day at the office; than "Getz For Lovers" is exactly what' required-Chardonnay is optional.

In my opinion "Getz For Lovers" is nothing less than a "Magnum Opus".

SINCERELY:

James Whitaker
